The Rise of Christianity by Rodney Stark
March 21, 2021 @ 8:45 am - 9:45 am
Join us this Sunday, March 21, 8:45-9:45 a.m. as WCC member Chuck Dowding presents The Rise of Christianity, a groundbreaking 1996 study by Rodney Stark: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85411684152. You can also call in: (312) 626-6799, meeting ID: 854 1168 4152. The session will be recorded.
Stark explores how Christians, a small Jewish movement in Palestine, became the majority religion of the Roman Empire in just a few centuries. Rather than relying solely on the typical disciplines of history, theology, and textual study to address this question, Stark draws on his expertise as a sociologist. Warning: there will be epidemics!
Come and find out “how Jesus won the West.”
